The journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) published evidence that supports the anabolic properties of mustard, and its potential role as a muscle building stimulator! The yellow stuff contains a plant steroid called homobrassinolide, which is a type of steroid….but without the negative stigma attached!
This plant steroid promotes muscle protein synthesis, meaning a serving of this with your steak or nut roast might be the boost your muscles need (Esposito, Komarnytsky, Shapses et al. 2011)!
